2003 Mercedes Benz SL500 (R230)
Tidy R230 with the thumping 5.0 V8 engine in silver
with light grey heated electric leather and Comand Nav showing 90,000 miles
Dating from March 2003 this earlier model R230 series
SL500 features the powerful 5.0 V8 and has had four owners from new who have
covered just over 90,000 miles in this folding metal roof convertible Merc.
The SL is finished in popular Tellurs Silver and sits on
standard 7 spoke 17inch wheels with grey Alpaca leather and burr walnut trim
inside. There is factory navigation via MB’s Comand system which also doubles as
the radio/CD player. Further specification features include heated electric
memory seats, automatic lights, rain sensing wipers, electric lumbar adjustment,
cruise control with speed limit function, head lamp wash, dual zone climate
control with A/C and adjustable air suspension with ABC. Transmission is
automatic with Tiptronic option and this example also features tinted windows
for added privacy.
The history file includes the V5C, DX navigation disc
dated 2004, owners pack with manuals and supplements, a selection of invoices
including for historic servicing by both MB main dealers and Halfords
Autocentres along with health check reports and 9 old MOTs. Invoices of note
include one for a replacement alternator in November 2015 at a cost of £465, and
a major service including braking system consumables costing £896 by MB
Wolverhampton in 2010.
The car comes with an MOT valid until July 2021 with just
2 advisories for front brake pads and is, as we understand, ready to be enjoyed.
Further bonus is the inclusion of the private plate 'W8NHC' with this
